Northerly winds continued with a small amount of turnover. Ringing at Cristin produced four Spotted Flycatchers, a Lesser Whitethroat and the first juvenile Blackbird of the year. Elsewhere, two Swifts went south, a Cuckoo was at Nant and seven Spotted Flycatchers were recorded.

The afternoon was spent ringing the first Chough pullus of the year with four chicks colour ringed. We also did the final Auk egg count of Bae Felan which resulted in finding three Storm Petrels; the first of the year.
